Converting string to 2 digit decimal number

 Hi all,

My question is how to convert a string like 80.00 to a number with 2 decimal digits. I've tried many solutions such as formating the string and then converting the string to double but it doesn't work, still shows as 80.0. Can anyone help me with that?

 For display purposes you can use string.format. I'm assuming this is currency related variable.

decimal moneyValue = 80.0m;
string displayValue = String.Format("Total: {0:C}", moneyValue);

 What I meant was converting string to decimal not the other way round. I have a string like "80.00" and I want to convert it to decimal number with exactly 2 digits floating points like 80.00

If you are planning on using this double variable for further calculations. You will get the same result with .xx vs .x

But if you are planning on displaying this variable, you will need convert it back to string and then you can use string.format

Please let us know what you are planning on doing with this double variable? Display? Re-use it? etc

VB.NET: How to convert hexadecimal number to normal (decimal) number?
Hi to all VB.NET function Hex() converts numbers to hexadecimal strings, is there any reverse function that converts hexadecimals back to numbers?? Thanks, Hooker Hi, how are you? In C#, we have something like: Convert.ToInt32(string strValue, int Base)...

What should one use for converting a string containing decimals to a number in the core?
Perl_grok_number() doesn't return the number of characters it found in the number, unlike Perl_grok_hex() etc, so one has to parse the string again to position beyond the number. This is a waste of time and the source for potential bugs when the reparsing doesn't match the original logic. strtol() (or better Strtol()) does, but it is has some locale dependencies, which, while not likely to bite, theoretically could. Same for strtoul() (Strtoul) and atoi (Atoi). ...

Converting string to number but there's a comma as decimal point
I have a small problem in my XSL file when converting string to a number. This is how it’s being done: <xsl:value-of select="number(stringValue)”> Where, for example, stringValue can be "0.5" in US region or "0,5" in some European regions. While the conversion from "0.5" works great, a conversion from "0,5" results in failure and a NaN result. Does anybody know of a way of handling number conversion in XSL in a universal way that is independent from regional settings and would work for both "0.5" and "0,5"? the meaning of a decimal and comma are dependent on the...

Decimal in String to Decimal Number Conversion
I think I'm out of luck after visting DejaNews (hints but no definitive answer), but figured you all are worth a try... :) My PB program imports a text file containing decimal numbers in the format ####.## (e.g., 1234.56), and then converts them to a number to put into a numeric datawindow column. Problem is that if regional settings are set to use the comma as decimal separator and period as thousands separator, then the resulting number from Real(ls_number) is 123456 rather than 1234.56. This is a big problem. The only solution I have so far is to remove the decimal form th...
